Does anyone know if its possible to get EVIC installed somehow on my Charger? I have a regular R/T 07. If so, is it expensive, do I have to go to the dealer?

I don't believe it can be done at the dealership at all.

Yeah I was just reading some old threads on the subject, and it seems like everyone has different opinions. I'll give my dealer a call later. One thing I'm confused about, is it two different things to get EVIC and the steering wheel with the buttons?

I got great news for all those that want the EVIC option!
I just got off the phone with my dealer and they said it is possible, I'm just looking to spend somewhere between 1,200- 1,5oo, somewhere around that ball park. I can't wait for taxes times to come around!

Hmm, does the dealership actually know what your talking about? From what I know it's not possible to install EVIC unless it's at the factory. I believe even an SRT guy has said before that you can't.

Dealers also say that it's not possible to add factory u-connect after the car leaves the factory; all that's possible with them is to install the aftermarket u-connect (the one that has a little doohickey stuck to your dashboard).

Some enterprising folks figured out how to actually do it and now you can even order a kit from moparsupercenter to do it.

If this really is possible, it would be very useful to get the complete list of parts needed (all of the modules, cables, etc.) since this comes up pretty regularly. I don't know if it's cost-effective to do, but just to make it possible would be a big step.

Let us know how it turns out.

I was just going to say that. They also said adding the EVIC to my Jeep was impossible but that proved to be as simple as putting in the module and connecting four wires to the data link connector under the dash. ANYTHING is possible in modern cars. If you really wanted to, you could make a Superbee flash screen show up on your EVIC, you just have to know the parts involved and do some reprogramming, but in the end it all comes down to replacing certain pieces. The difference between an R/T and an R/T with Electronics Convenience cannot be that vast. Just have to find out which computers, wires and parts to replace and do it, and then which parts need to be reprogrammed. After all, what if you were in an accident and those parts were ruined. Are they somehow not able to rebuild the car as a result? Come on.

I want it because its just a good feature to have, maybe its not something I really need, but I do want it. Don't people pay about 1,200+ for a ram air hood? Anyway, I know I should of done my homework more before buying the car, but I didn't. All I knew was SE, SXT, R/T, Daytona and SRT. Plus I did a trade in and I just couldn't afford too much. What's this dashhawk thing you mentioned?

I would rather put that $300 into finding out how to enable the factory EVIC rather than having something else hanging off my dash looking cluttered...

I'll tell you something else. Numerous people have talked about how it is impossible to use the sun sensor if it did not come with your car, but I was just looking at the pinout and it does not even interface with the CAN BUS! It's as simple as tracing where the wires go and hooking them in, it looks like.

Are you saying that all of our cars are basically wired the same, just not with the hardware attached?
